A peace-building program, sponsored by Saint Leo University and some other organizations, will be offered at two locations on Sept. 30.
The event will feature Rabbi Ron Kronish, director of the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel, and Qadi (Judge) Iyad Zahalka, head of the Muslim Sharia Court in Jerusalem. They will discuss “The Other Peace Process–Interreligious Dialogue in the Service of Peace.”
The speakers will share their thinking on grassroots efforts at peace building. The event will be hosted by Saint Leo’s Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies.
The program will be presented twice. The first session is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., in the Student Community Center, Greenfelder-Denlinger, 33701 State Road 52 in Saint Leo, four miles east of Interstate 75.
An evening session is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Congregation Beth Am, 2030 W. Fletcher Ave. in Tampa.
The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited so admission will be first-come, first-serve.
Besides Saint Leo, other sponsors of the event are Congregation Beth Am, University Ministry and West Central Florida Pathology Associates/Harvey Feld M.D.
